As women age, an imbalance of their hormone levels wreaks havoc on their intimacy and sexual function. As women see a change in their hormone levels, they see a significant impact on their intimacy, libido, and sensation related to optimized hormone levels.
During menopause, women can suffer from vaginal dryness, decreased sex drive, and painful intercourse as well as a range of other intimate problems due to the depletion of their estrogen levels. At Midwest Hormone Centers, we’ve put together some intimate wellness tips to help you overcome the symptoms of menopause and regain your sense of intimacy and confidence in relationships.
At first, we see women become mentally irritated on edge with high anxiety as the Progesterone levels decline in the body this has a direct impact on the cortisol levels in the body and a woman’s ability to relax and connect emotionally with loved ones and their mate.

This can have detrimental effects on a woman’s personal life, but with progesterone treatments, women can expect to experience reduced anxiety and reduced irritability, along with improved mood.
Menopause also causes a reduction in female testosterone levels which can make it difficult for women to maintain their sex drive. The depletion of testosterone can also decrease a woman’s sexual satisfaction, as well as their sleep cycle, weight, and bone density.
With testosterone treatments, you can increase the blood flow to the clitoris, helping to improve overall sensation which can make achieving orgasm easier.
Vaginal dryness is another symptom caused by a lack of estrogen in the body. As your estrogen production drops, you can expect to experience varying degrees of vaginal dryness. This can make intercourse difficult and painful for menopausal women.
While there are estrogen rings that are inserted into the vagina every three weeks and release estrogen there is a more effective treatment to resolve this problem and others associated with low estrogen IM injections or pellets.
If you are experiencing painful intercourse, it is essential to visit your doctor for an exam. This can help you rule out disease or infection as the cause.
